The comedy stand-up show basically is comedy talent hunt shows where the seven comedy contemporaries are supposed to find out the best 10 selected comedians from the auditions in New Delhi, Mumbai and Bangalore. The show has started streaming on the Amazon Prime.
Biswa Kalyan who is an IIT alumnus talked about the show and his comedy stint along with what really changed the field of stand-up comedy. He has been popularly known for his stand-up comedy shows and also got his stand-up comedy original show ‘ Mast Aadmi’ on Amazon Prime. He also wrote the web series ‘ Lakhon Mein Ek..’
Biswa Kalyan has shared that every new show teaches one about the world and how the person is as well. According to him, doing Comicstaan was a great experience. He said everybody secretly judges comedy but the challenge was to do it in the public where one’s opinion really matters. He shared that they can laugh at times but ultimately they have to rate it which required a lot of introspection. He has said “Every new show teaches you a lot – about the world and who you are. Doing Comicstaan was a great experience completely. We all secretly judge comedy, but it was a challenge to do it publicly as your opinions really matter. You can laugh but to come down to a number and rate an act, it needed a lot of introspection.”
He said that the participants were really so much talented that they didn’t need much mentoring. He also learnt a lot during the process of judging Comicstaan. He also mentioned that the actual challenge was to polish their strength in comedy without imposing their thoughts and ideas on their content and style. He said that he and others have really fun interacting with these new comedians.
He added “The participants were really talented and so they did not need much mentoring. But yes, during the process I got to learn a lot. The challenge was to maintain and polish their strengths than forcing our thoughts and ideas. I must add it was a fun time interacting with these young people,”
Biswa Kalyan shared that according to him, every comedian should write their own act and they should never follow other’s style. He mentioned that a joke actually an intellectual property and it should not be copied. He also said when the comedian writes their own stand-ups it will be easier to act it that way. On writing is his strength, he further talked “I think everybody should write their own acts and never follow anybody else’s style. I think a joke is also an intellectual property and it shouldn’t be copied. And when you write for yourself, you know its soul and it’s easier to perform that way.”
Biswa Kalyan further talked about his last writing experience where he wrote the full fiction feature series ‘ Lakhon Mein Ek..’, he said “I was amazed at the response it got, people really liked it. I think I enjoy writing a lot and performing comes close second. I am writing another fiction show and soon, you all will get to know about it.” He was asked about writing on TV or featuring a show, he shared “I have to really like the script. Currently, I do not have the bandwidth to do TV but it’s a great platform for many things, for example, live cricket commentary. I am open to doing television, but it has to be something that suits my style.”
Apart from Biswa Kalyan Rath, there are other six contemporary comedians to judge the show and mentor new competing comedians; these are Kenny Sebastian, Tanmay Bhatt, Sapan Verma, Kanan Gill, Naveen Richard and Kaneez Surkha. The show is hosted by Abhish Matthew and Sumukhi Suresh.
